Best Garage Band St. Louis 2007 - The Vultures

In a few short years, the Vultures have grown from three scrappy, underage rock & roll acolytes into one of the leading lights of this city's garage-band community. The trio's sets have moved from charmingly shambolic to drum-tight, plying audiences with primal screams, twangy guitar runs and a soulful, rubbery backbeat. The Vultures keep the needle moving by touching on rockabilly, swamp rock and gritty blues with little nuggets of pop bliss thrown in for sweetening. What's more, bassist and singer/shrieker Trashley spreads the dirt-rock love on her radio show, Talkin' Trash, on KDHX (88.1 FM) from midnight till 2 a.m. on Tuesday nights, playing first-generation punk, blue-eyed soul and rockabilly into the wee small hours. The Vultures are a band whose mission is the music, and the trio aims to win converts by any means necessary.

I saw this band a while back at the Way Out Club and I have to say they were pretty bad. They must have a lot of loyal fans who voted for them to get them on this list. If you are in to sloppy music with a female Eric Cartman screaming off key in the mic, then this is the band for you!

I saw this band at The Feisty Bulldog and they were one of the worst bands I have ever seen. They took huge breaks in between each song, the singer was horrible, she could not sing on key if her life depended on it. Last time I checked, garage band doesn't mean crappy band. I know the local scene is loyal to each other, and you should support local music, no matter how aweful it is. But the Vultures are a horrible band. I am guessing one of them either works for the RFT or is dating someone at the RFT. That is the only way I can see such a crappy band make it on this list.
